The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge shared a rare behind-the-scenes glimpse from their recent tour of Pakistan on Sunday afternoon. A short video posted to the Kensington Palace Twitter account started with a clip of the royal couple getting into a tuk-tuk which had the British and Pakistan flags in the background. The Duchess could be heard saying "so funny," as she got in and then when a voice off-camera said, "Enjoy," the mum-of-three responded: "Thank you so much, we'll see you there." It was filmed on day two of their royal tour, when they attended a reception at the Pakistan National Monument.

The rest of the video showed a montage of lovely moments from the action-packed visit, including Prince William and Kate watching traditional dances, spending time at the Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital and Research Centre, of which Princess Diana was a big supporter, and visiting the SOS Children's Village orphanage where the couple took part in craft-making activities and a cricket match and the residents seemed delighted to see them. The 55-second clip finished with the hashtag #RoyalVisitPakistan over an image of both countries' flags. The tweet accompanying the video read: "Thank you Pakistan!" in both English and Urdu.
